The Accra International Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10k, 5k, & Team Relay
Please stand with us to support our brothers and sisters in the Ebola-stricken countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
That, in the face of the Ebola threat, is the question
An organization whose enduring theme is AIMing to keep Africa Alive! should not shy away from a high sense of responsibility for public health and safety, and the organizers of the Accra International Marathon (AIM) keenly feel that sense of duty. Participatory events such as the AIM, a multi-distance leisure running and walking event now in its eighth year, form an essential part of the infrastructure required to nurture and sustain an active lifestyle, which in turn leads to improved public wellness on many levels. In a very real sense, the AIM is helping previously sedentary individuals to cultivate the health and fitness habit, so “health and safety first” is the natural catchphrase of the event organizers.
Deadline for race bib personalization is 28 Aug.
This will be our great eighth year of AIMing to Keep Africa Alive! Nationals from four different countries, Ghana, Kenya, Netherlands and Nigeria, enjoyed attractive cash prizes last year. We can’t wait to see where the prize money will go this year. The core goals of the AIM are to encourage and support Ghanaians to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. The event is designed to be accessible and enjoyable for all skill levels; you can run, jog, walk or even do a jig. Afterwards, relax, eat, drink and be merry on the pristine lawns and beachfront of the 5-star Labadi Beach Hotel.
The vision of AIM is to attract national and international participants to a world-class marathon running and walking event in the nation's capital and to be a fundraising vehicle in support of The Longevity Project (the Project). The mission of the Project is to increase the life expectancy and quality of life of Ghanaians. The prevailing life expectancy is under 65 years.
Make it a Family Fitness Day; there will be fun and fitness activities at the finish line venue for the young and young at heart. Family and friends are welcome to attend the festivities at no charge. (A modest flat fee will entitle ticket holders to all the attractions and a chance to win fun prizes.)
